     Traffic remained lethargic at the complete review in August, down slightly over last summer's totals.
     Good to see some new reviews do well -- two in the top six !

For recent bestseller lists, go to previous lists.
For annual and older lists, see also the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, , 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 , 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 lists.
